The band began life as a recording project for Liam Hesslewood. Following a turbulent 2012, there was an outpouring of creativity that resulted in an albums worth of material.A varied selection of melody driven metal songs and softer ballads, with massive potential. All that was needed was a band to develop and play the songs. Upon recruiting Calum Stansfield, Craig Rankin and Danny Cameron over the space of 3-4 months, a massive overhaul of the demo’s recorded and musical style began.
This controversal band was started in 2003, when Frankie from New York met Lionetti brothers from New Fairfield through an internet message board. Then he travelled to Connecticut to begin rehearsals together. At this time Emmure was performing quite a different style of music, but then guitarist Jesse Ketive brought some heaviness which gave birth to what Emmure is known for.
